Pours a copper color with thin tan head that needs some help getting started. Nose is nice and hoppy very floral and sweet maybe a little grassy. Flavor is predominantly bitter with some nice toasty notes thrown in there. Finish is dry, crisp and bitter. Nice nice nice!

Pours a dark amber color, and releases a fantastic, hoppy aroma. This is a citrusy, bitter ale and the floral-hop flavor puts it near the top of my list.

From a bottle at the Olympic. Bold hoppy flavor, absolutely great for hop lovers. Plenty of citrus in the finish nice to have a place in town that consistently serves this one. Rating number 100 for me.

MrStitch (137) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2008
On tap DLD08. Pours a rich orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus, piney, and floral. Taste is very nice, unforgiving hop flavor mixed with some hop flavor. This is a really excellent beer that I would recommend to all.

This yellow to orange pour looks and full mouth as it feels. Nose is all pine and grapefruit. A rich hoppy flavor with a hint of sweetness in the form of caramel. A satisfying beer.

Bottle. Pours a bright clear reddish gold with a light head. Floral and herbal hop notes with a sweet taste and a touch of rhubarb. A flavorful and mildly bitter finish. An excellent pale ale.

Pours an amber color with a rich off-white head. Citrus aroma is present but not overpowering. Flavor is initially sweet caramel malt quickly balanced by the grapefruit and citrus hops. Mouthfeel is good throughout. Finish is like a crisp apple. Reminds me of a Pseudo Sue or a slightly less aggressive Hopslam. Very well balanced and drinkable.

a bottle or thrEE...Cloudy orange appereance. Wonderful hoppy and fruity citrus aroma. Flavor has mild malts and fruits followed by an overwhelming hoppy bitter and acidic (grapes?) finish. LoVe all Three Floyds!!!!

I bought a case of this recently, although I’ve had it on draft and bottle before, this time I’ve decided to rate it. Pours clear amber with nice thick tan head. Flower aroma, definitely hoppy. Medium character, outstanding taste, tons of bitterness. Definitely one to put onto the regular rotation.

Wonderful statement of cascade hops, with a clean/bold statement. Very drinkable, I can see why they did so well at the GABF !! A must try if you like Hoppy ales.
